    Get rid of it. It's no use and makes the engine bay a lot tidier, as well as getting rid of the crappy noise it makes.

    got a pic?

    And it's not too much of an effort and makes a big difference.

    the picture i posted is an A3

    If you still have the airbox on the car then the SAI pipe runs into the airbox and shares the same panel filter as the TIP so there is no need to fit the mini cone filter

    can't?

    Do you have SAI? What year is your car, Engine code?

    in the pic of your bay when you still had the standard air box there is no SAI, so i'd guess you have no SAI
